School Improvement Plan 2017-20


The Manor Field Learner is encouraged, challenged and supported through an integrated, enriched approach to learning, based on real life contexts and delivered through purposeful activities. Where there are barriers to success, either academic, social or emotional, there is a commitment to work beyond them. Aspirations for and expectations of all contributors are high. Staff, Governors, Parents and children work together in partnership, supported by outside agencies, to achieve the best that they can. Participation from all is valued and there is an expectation that everyone will contribute to the team. The whole person is developed through a rights respecting ethos, underpinned by the United Nations Convention for the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). When people leave Manor Field, adults or children, they take with them a sense of identity and belonging and they recognise the contribution that they make to the 21st Century society.


We operate a three year School Improvement Plan.  Our current priorities are:

To improve standards in writing, we need to: develop pupils’ technical writing skills so that they apply phoneme to grapheme correspondences accurately, write effectively and enthusiastically for a purpose, meeting an audience’s specific needs, and independently edit and improve their work.

To improve standards in reading, including reading across the curriculum, we need to: develop pupils’ reading resilience, stamina and retention to read a wider range of complex texts, engage children with a broad range of reading materials, inspire children to select different genres and authors, and develop their skills of inference and deduction as reading detectives.

To improve standards across the wider curriculum, and particularly in science, we need to: develop the children as curious, engaged learners, who have inquisitive minds, and the skills required to enquire and experiment, leading to intelligent thinking and understanding, evaluations and conclusions.
